Hi Dr. Young, many thanks for your valuable time spent in helping us. I did some moles biopsy & excision on my back early this week, and my Dr. Prescribed some Antibiotics (Moxypen 500) that I am taking since and that I have to continue for a total 10 days; my question is: will this interfere with my ARV (Truvada+Sustiva) that I am taking? Or will that affect my VL or my CD4 count in a way or the other (increase or decrease)? Please advise me as usual. Many many thanks.
Thank you for your post and kind words.
Amoxicllin (Moxipen) doesn't have any significant drug-drug interactions with your HIV meds- so worry not.
If you had a skin infection at the time of your biopsy, then this could transiently affect your viral load. If not, the biospy itself should have little or no effect.
Best of health to you,
